Martha (Debbie Doebereiner), a plump red-haired woman in her 30s, lives with and cares for her aging father (Omar Cowan). She is one of five employees in Bubble a factory that mass-produces plastic baby dolls. Martha has developed a connection with young Kyle (Dustin Ashley). Their lunchtime conversations are so numbingly bland they”re almost funny. She puts more stock in their “friendship” than he does, and when the pretty Rose (Misty Wilkins) is hired as a temp worker, Martha instantly goes on the defensive.

Compared with the unflinching dullness of her co-workers, Rose drives in extra gear. When she goes to clean a woman’s house, she scandalizes Martha by taking a bath in the absent lady’s bathtub. She admits to Kyle that she was a rebel in high school and ran away from home at 15. She also has a 2-year-old daughter, the fruit of an unhappy relationship with her ex-b.f. Jake (K. Smith). Rose asks Martha to babysit while she goes out on a date. The scene in Rose’s cramped living room develops with off-handed horror as Martha realizes Rose’s date is with Kyle. Rose and Kyle’s evening unfolds with ritual banality, but when Rose gets home, she finds Jake waiting for her. They have a shouting match in front of a terrified Martha, who is further insulted when she tries to talk to Rose about it, and Rose tells her to mind her own business. The next morning, Rose is found strangled on her living room floor. Neither the police inspector (Decker Moody) nor the audience is long left in doubt about whodunit. In the last 20 minutes of the film, everyone tries to figure out why the crime was committed.
